Having your Oven not working correctly can be frustrating especailly when we use this appliance on a daily base. While you are waiting on an expert to answer your question, I was searching in the Manage My Life website and found a great link. I have attached the link below. Hope this is helpful!

Thanks. This is a basic model and I have only had it since buying my new house 2 years ago.

If neither the broil or bake will work the problem is usually a thermostat, broken wire, or the oven control.

If you will reply on this thread and include the model number of the range and details of what works and what doesn't, I will be glad to help.

Model # 790.95039700 Kenmor. I have only had it since 2008. Everything works. CLock, timer, oven light , all surface burners work. The oven just not heat up. I push the bake button, select temp and it clicks like it is heating up and I do hear a slight hum as if it is going to heat, but nothing, no glow, no heat at all.

Thanks for sending the model number and details. You know the range is getting the proper voltage since the top burners and the oven light are working. Your range does not have a safety thermostat that could be causing the bake element no not work. Try broil and see if the broil element will heat. Inspect the bake element for any rough areas on it. When an element fails it will sometimes create an area on the outside of the coil that is very rough. If you find such an area, replace the element. Disconnect the power to the range and remove the covers on the rear of the range. Inspect the yellow wire that runs from the clock to the bake element, Inspect the orange wire that runs from the clock to the broil and bake elements. If you have an ohm meter, disconnect one wire from the bake element and check the resistance of the element. The bake and broil elements should read around 15-30 ohms resistance. If you still have questions reply on this thread and I will be glad to help.

No the broil does not work. I checked the coils and they are smooth, no rough spots and their is no spots where it looks like they burned out I do not have an ohm meter. I guess I will have to call a repair man. Do you think it is a part that needs to be replaced? Do you think it is the control panel or still the bake element? A repairman is going to cost 129.00 just to come out and diagnosis. Any other suggestions. Thank you.

Jimmy K , March 08, 2011

Since neither the bake or broil elements are working, I don't think the elements are the problem. I think the clock is the problem unless a wire is burned on the clock or elements. I don't want to recommend you replace the clock without some further testing. I guess you should get a technician to diagnose the problem.
